A Chair With A Panda On It

Standard

That is the dematerializing control, and that over yonder is the horizontal hold, up there is the scanner, those are the doors, and that is a chair with a panda on it.

So Much to See!

Standard

“I’m not running away. But this is one corner of one country on one continent on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond, and there is so much, so much, to see. Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I am running to them. Before they flare and fade forever.”

~ The Doctor

Waste of Time

Standard

It is difficult to know what will be a waste of time until after the time has been wasted, by which time it is too late. So predicting what will be a waste of time is something of a waste of time. Unless it gives you pleasure of course when it probably doesn’t count as a waste of time.

~ The Doctor

Petty Tyranny

Standard

“What kind of person actually sits down and decides that no one should be allowed to end a sentence with a preposition? Not even decide what ideas you should or shouldn’t talk about, but to actually make rules about what order to put your words in… It’s such an amazing kind of petty tyranny.”
― Jonathan Blum Kate Orman

Magic

Standard

“Magic?’ Kate snorted. ‘There’s no such thing. Is there?’
‘Magic?’ Barnabas shrugged. ‘Why not? Magic is cool.’
‘But there has to be a rational explanation.’
‘Oh there is,’ Barnabas led her our of the cave and back to the shore. ‘But a rational explanation is rather complex. We’re dealing with a psycho-temporal entity manifesting through a critical mass of its sentient shell…um. Magic sounds more fun.”

Everytime You See Them Happy

Standard

“Madge: I don’t know why I keep shouting at them.
The Doctor: Because every time you see them happy you remember how sad they’re going to be. And it breaks your heart. Because what’s the point in them being happy now if they’re going to be sad later. The answer is, of course, because they are going to be sad later.
~ The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe”

Examine Everything

Standard

The Doctor: Examine everything. Look for all the details that don’t ring true.

Rory Williams: OK we’re in a spaceship that’s bigger on the inside than the outside.

Amy Pond: With a bow tie-wearing alien.

Rory Williams: Maybe “what rings true” isn’t so simple.

The Doctor: Valid point.
